Teryan Extra Old 8 Year Armenian Brandy


40% ABV, 750 ml, Armenian Brandy

"Coming directly from Armenia, and named after Vahan Teryan, the Armenian iconic poet, the Teryan Brandy lands in the United States, in response to a high demand for authentic Armenian brandy of the past years.

In fact, Armenia is thought to be the cradle of viticulture and winemaking, which is proved by the discovery in 2011 of the world’s oldest winery, approximately 6000 years old. It also appears that Armenia started making brandy around the Middle Age, preceding the production of brandy in Western Europe and notably of Cognac.

Teryan brandy, much like the poet, gives everyone a taste of Armenia from wherever in the world they may be.

Produced at Proshyan Distillery, one of the oldest distilleries of the country, founded in 1885, the same year as the poet’s birth, Teryan Brandy is made from the Mskhali and Kangun grapes, which come from the Ararat, Armavir and Vayots Dzor regions. To make this brandy, the wine goes through a double distillation in a copper pot still using the Charentaise distillation method.

After the wine is distilled, the brandy is aged for 8 years in 400 liter oak barrels. The barrels are made of oak trees grown in the Tavush region of Armenia and cut at a minimum age of 50 years old. This process results in a brandy that combines floral and spicy notes, with a strong taste of fruit and oak.

The unique climate in the Ararat valley, together with the high quality local grapes, established the quick development of the Armenian brandy industry."
